Sears Kit Homes of Downers Grove

Tue July 2, 2024



New exhibit now open at Downers Grove Museum!

LOCATED IN THE MONTREW DUNHAM HISTORY CENTER
SUMMER 2024 to SPRING 2025


Downers Grove has a great deal of confirmed Sears Kit Homes, 68 as a matter of fact. Many of the examples here in town have made it nearly to or exceeded the 100-year mark. This new exhibit will explain how these homes were ordered, delivered and built. The centerpiece will be framed examples of Sears Kit Homes that still stand in Downers Grove. Visitors can also explore original advertisements, floor plan options, and the prices people originally paid for these homes.
